A lovely fish, indeed. No doubt the young man had a fight on his hands. The fish looks bright and strong. What weight tippet was he using?

It was an epic battle, fast water and boulders. Someone should make a movie with a scene like that. 8 wt Sage and I believe 4x tippet. I was working with his buddy when it started, he was squealing like a school girl by the time I got to him. When I saw the fish jump we both started making funny noise. Young man did a masterful job driving the fish around the boulders that threatened to cut the leader.

Excellent account of what must surely have been a great time.

Wow, that was wonderful to see! You have a wonderful life, I know it's work, but what you get to do for your job is what every outdoorsman wish he/she was doing for a living!

Thanks for putting up the beautiful pictures, I love seeing them!

Enjoy your fall back home, be safe and God Bless in your life ahead.
